WordPress.com idea: Guided signups

Problem statement: Some users arrive at WordPress.com with intentions to launch a specific type of website. They know what type of site they want (e.g. photography portfolio) but don’t know how to use WordPress to achieve their goals. Although there’s lots of documentation available on features, we offer very little instructive, illustrated guidance on setting up different types of websites.

Each guide could have:

  • Links to example sites
  • Suggested WordPress.com upgrades
  • Suggested WordPress.com themes
  • Steps you need to take to configure your site
  • Frequently asked questions about setting up this type of site

This idea has been around the block a lot, and I recently rediscovered it in a notes folder. I think guided signups would be super useful for photo blogs, small to medium size business sites, mommy bloggers, etc.
